My UNIX server is integrated with AD to allow identity management for UNIX, using AD credentials.

My question is, is domainname\username a supported logon type format in UNIX world?

Please advise.

No, it is not. You only need to login with the username.

If you have nsswitch configured correctly, for instance - ldap, files. It will authenticate with your ldap server first then local.

Thanks for your response. Just as I thought, it is not supported in UNIX world.

Yes, LDAP, nsswitch and kerebros are configured to authenticate Windows users to UNIX systems.
